Drill and tap both ends in the event you strip the threads out you only need to change ends on the puller.

 

The 3/4 reducer goes towards the pin.

Thats what I was thinking. Do the threads on these fail eaisly?

 

Okay wasn't sure, I probly would have found out when I tryed to use it the wrong way.

If the pin is really stuck and there is not enough heat applied, yes they can strip.

Well after 4 attempts at drilling a hole 100% perfectly straight and center on my drill press, I have given up. With the 3/4" ACME rod there is just absolutely no room for error. the hole drilled fine but when I go to thread it it just makes holes in the bottom of the threads. I have decided to go with a some bigger ACME thread instead 7/8" or 1". Should solve my problem, guess I'll just use the rest of this rod on another project. :/

 

On a side note what thread pitch are the pins normally anyway? Because for some reason mine are 12-1.75 instead of the 12-1.25 like you posted above.

Yea. I think im gonna go with a slightly larger rod, and use a freinds lathe. If it was and SAE thread that didn't go as deep I wouldn't be concerned, but with this ACME its so thin by the time you drill a 27/64 hole in it.

 

As for the threads, I find that extreamly odd because its definantly 1.75 and the thread are not messed up. Just makes me concerned that someone put the wrong stuff in there at some point. I guess it doesnt matter Im replacing them anyway.

 

Thanks for the help John!

Material is ordered.  I bought enough of the Acme rod, to make 12 tools.  I'll be useing the 7/8-6 rod for a bit more wall thickness. 

Complete kits, will be made, with the draw tube.  I will be shipping them the cheapest way I can. 

I only got emails from a few of you, PM me, I'll drop you my mobile number. 

 

I have a job I'm running now that uses an offset tailstock setting.  So once that is off the lathe, I'll set it up for this job, provided the materials get here soon!!

I finally finished mine last weekend, I had to borrowed a friends lathe. But I got it and it worked like a charm. I ended up using 1" ACME rod. I'm keeping an extra as a spare, But I have 4 other if anyone wants one. I don't mean to under cut you or any thing Keith, but I have no use for 6 of these things.

PM sent.  For everybody else, the tools I made are $70 shipped Priority Mail to a US address.  They are made from 1018 tool steel with a pipe puller tube. I went with a larger 7/8 for the tool, the tool is double ended so IF you manage to strip it the other side of the tool is ready to use. Thank you everybody. Keith
